to new taxes. other than that, they're divided by chuck hagel and a legislative and pr strategy for dealing with the sequester, divided about immigration, divided to some extent about just the general posture towards the president. and i think you see in that poll, you know, you say who's the republican party unpopular with? to some extent obviously with democrats. but the reason the number's down so low is a lot of republicans are unhappy with the party. some from the right and some from the left. i think right now the president and his team are firing on all cylinders on the pr war leading up to the sequester. and republicans have put themselves in a weakened position. a lot of long-term issues as well. >> when your brand is in the 20s, you're in harry truman and george w. bush territory. it's just not good. and you know, the president is winning the day on a lot of issues, especially when it comes to dealing with gun violence. if you look at the poll, overwhelmingly, americans think that this country needs stricter gun laws. that obviously is an offshoot of not only newtown b

nomination than was chuck hagel the week before. he was far more confident, far more informed, authoritative. but this is the first time it was ever debated, the subject. i mean it's gone undebated. and i have to concede that much of the criticism, i think from conservative press is absolutely valid. if this were george w. bush and dick cheney and we had increased by sixfold the number of unmanned attacks on other countries that are not combatant countries, that were not at war with, there would have been far more hue and cry. and it is interesting that the president, the only criticism in the president seems to be among a few liberals, and the support seems to be from people like john bolton-- and so it's a debate i think we have to have, we should have and it's been cloaked in secrecy and secrecy is the sacrosanct secular religion of this city. >> woodruff: so this has stirred it up? >> i think so, because of the leaked memo and the system, we are having a debate about drones. and i guess if i want a drone policy i want it run by a franciscan, not a jesuit. but he didn't really defend it,

: if senator hagel's nomination goes to the general senate, will you support him after what you saw last week? >> i am really deeply concerned about what i saw last week. i think i'm leaning no on this nomination and i will tell you why. it was shocking to me when he was asked about our policy toward iran, that the fundamental -- one of the fundamental threats to our country that he didn't know that our policy was not containment? i mean, that was shocking. >> gretchen: he said he agreed with the president's policy of containment, but that isn't the policy. senator, always great to get your thoughts, have a great rest of the week. >> take care, thanks for having me. >> brian: now some headlines. that call will have to wait. coffee comes first. officers from the miami-dade police department caught on coffee breaks and one getting cozy with his girlfriend instead of answering emergency calls. the investigation reveals in one case, a five-month-old while was unconscious and one of the officers told the dispatcher he was enroute when, in fact, he was having coffee with his supervisor. the sergean
